An ABC15 analysis of Federal Election Commission data shows that Hillary Clinton has out-raised Donald Trump -- by a margin of more than two-to-one -- in terms of individual campaign contributions statewide. 

As of June 30, Clinton has received $211,330 in Tempe, while Trump has received $74,458 in Scottsdale. Those totals come from the top cities, respectively, for each candidate. 

Overall, Clinton has received almost $700,000, while Arizonans have donated more than $300,000 to Trump.

"The Clinton campaign has done a much better job at raising money in Arizona than the Trump campaign to date, and even in areas where Trump is strong, so is Clinton," said Arizona State University presidential historian Brooks Simpson.

Despite the lead in contributions, Simpson said donors could be waiting on the sidelines closer to November's election.

"Generous donors allow our Republican candidates to get their message out to voters, and we’re thankful so many of those donors are right here in Arizona," Arizona Republican Party spokesman Tim Sifert said. 

Simpson also notes that Clinton could challenge Trump in our state, which is thought to be majority Republican. Clinton's campaign has already expanded support in Arizona

"All of Arizona is excited about Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy and we look forward to increased contributions across the state in the next campaign finance report cycle," Arizona Democratic Party spokeswoman Barbara Lubin said. 

Arizona last went blue in 1996 -- for President Bill Clinton.
